    @rolf021 - hi there! i was blessed to get a 3-month contract after about a week from landing. i sent online applications a month before my flight and tinawagan ako ng headhunters tapos nagschedule ng personal interview sa week ng pagdating namin sa Oz. After 3 months, ginawa akong permanent sa work. Still with the company now, 1 year na ako and looking forward to more years :)

    @rolf021: Walk-in will probably get you far if you are talking about local small firms... For big institutions, I highly doubt! :)

    By the way, what was your experience previously?

    Rolf try mo rin sa local newspapers and sa mga kakilala., mas maganda pag nag refer...increase mo lang yung circle of friends mo. Yung wife ko 6 mos inabot bago nkakita ng work.
